DogWatch Hidden Fence and Remote Trainer Make a Big Difference in Life of Michigan Dog and Her Owner

Lily, a 7-month Australian Shepherd from Michigan, is a high-energy dog. She loves chasing after tennis balls, learning new tricks, and exploring the outdoors. Lily’s mom Tracey loves her herding dog’s spirited nature, but was worried about keeping her safe. Tracey uses a walker, and cannot chase after her speedy pup when she runs out the door or over to the neighbors’ yard.

While looking for a solution, Tracey found her local DogWatch Dealers, Rachael and Derrick Woiderski. The Woiderskis are the owner-operators of DogWatch by K9 Keeper Fencing LLC and the authorized DogWatch Hidden Fence Dealers serving Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Lansing and the surrounding area. After speaking with Tracey over the phone, they knew that they could help her and Lily stay safe and have more fun together. Read post »

SmartFence WebApp Update: Boundary Challenge Alerts are Here!

Announcing the newest feature of the DogWatch SmartFence®: Boundary Challenge Alerts!

SmartFence users will now receive an alert whenever their dog challenges the boundary of their hidden fence. A boundary challenge means that the pet has entered the “Avoidance Zone” leading up to the hidden fence boundary, and has received an audible (or vibration) warning and/or a correction. Any time a warning or correction is triggered, the SmartFence will generate an alert notification.

Boundary Challenge Alerts can be received via text and/or email. This new feature was developed in response to requests from SmartFence customers and our DogWatch Dealers. Read post »

Can a Hidden Fence Work for a Siberian Husky?

When you picture Siberian Huskies, chances are you picture them in motion. Whether they are pulling a sled, running laps at the dog park, chasing squirrels or playing with their pack, Huskies are among the most energetic and independent of all dog breeds. They are also well known “escape artists,” and can often be found digging under or leaping over fences.

Because of this reputation, pet parents looking for a way to safely contain their dog often ask us: “Can a hidden fence really work for my Siberian Husky?”

Yes, they can! For over 30 years, DogWatch Dealers have been training Siberian Huskies, Husky mixes, Alaskan Malamutes and more to stay in their yards with our hidden fences. We reached out to our DogWatch Dealers and customers to learn more about the process of training Huskies, adjusting collars to work with their thick coats, and how adding an underground electronic fence to their property helped their smart and athletic pups enjoy their freedom!

DogWatch Dealer Donates Hidden Fence to Help Keep Firehouse Dog Safe

Can Hounds Be Trained to Use a Hidden Fence?

Hounds are famous for two things: their noses and their speed. And anyone who has ever lived with a beagle, bloodhound, greyhound, dachshund or other hound dog knows just how fast and determined they can be when chasing prey (or the neighbor’s cat).

DogWatch Dealers are often asked: “Can a hidden fence REALLY work for a hound?” The answer is yes! For over 30 years, DogWatch Dealers have been training hounds and hound mixes to stay in their yards with our hidden fences. We reached out to our Dealers and customers to learn more about the process of training hounds, their unique personalities and how adding an underground electronic fence to their property helped their pups stay safe and do what hounds love to do – sniff, run and play!
